David wakes up in a strange bar with several unusual characters. The bartender offers David a glass of clear water to subside his cough, but David looks at it with apprehension. Bill, Steve, and Lester are sitting at one end of the bar, welcome David, and ask him to join them. David is escorted to the bar by two seductive beauties that just appeared. The bartender again offers David a clear glass of water and tells him it will help David's cough. David drinks the water, gains a little conciseness, and gets more concerned about where he is and how he got there. He turns to leave when Nicor, the only at the bar one wearing a red long-sleeved jacket, asks David, by name, where he thinks he is going.
When Nicor realizes that David still has confidence, Nicor morphs into an alluring female with mesmerizing eyes. David is induced into a hypnotic trance and remembers her taking his hand when he was a little boy in a swimming pool. As David's desire to leave diminishes, two more beguiling women offer to be with David forever. David almost succumbs to Nicor's bonds when Bill, tired of horrific things Nicor does to innocent people, tells David to "Swim. Keep Swimming."
David air swims and reaches the surface of the water coughing and catching his breath. As he reaches the shore, he realizes his car drove into the river and he almost drowned.
David finds himself in a strange bar where time stands still and demons drown their sorrows.
